Lili of the Valley Challenge -week 3

Hi everyone!
Thanks to all of you who joined in the challenge last week- we were so impressed with the entries. This week's theme over at the Lili of the Valley Challenge blog is "enchantment". This could mean fairies, dragons, unicorns, witches etc. Again this week you are not restricted to LOTV products. The prize this week is again fantastic- two Moggi stamps which are so cute and the best thing is that they're really versatile.

This is my entry (above) for my role on the DT. I used a fairy image from the Fairy Tale design sheet and decided it would look really cute as a shaker card. I haven't made one of these before so it took a bit of time to work out the dimensions for it. I filled it with a variety of tiny white stars, silver sequins and lilac flower sequins which matched really well with the colour of the image. I had this lovely lilac star paper which I thought was very fairy-like plus these pink star embellishments which I've had for ages which came free with a magazine. The pastel sentiment is from LOTV mounted on some lilac card and I added the flower embellishments which I ripped off an anniversary card someone gave us! The bow is also recycled from an old card I got! I love to recycle!!

Do take a look at the other designs by the DT and why not join in and get yourself a chance of winning those great stamps?!

Crafty stash used: Image- Fairy Tale image sheet (Lili of the Valley); Sentiment (Lili of the Valley); Paper (?); Assorted cardstock; Acetate; Pink stars, white star, sequins (free); Bow & flower embellishments (recycled)
